that's funny High Flow because I was just thinking that no one would give 71 any love. I was listening to 4-29 last weekend and everytime I put on a 71 I get blown away and wonder why I don't listen more. Not just the tone for me but Jerry really shreds and leads that year vs. a more laid back approach in say 73 and 74 and obviously 76. Ultimately I think he continually grew as anyone should until the H took effect and he got lazy, then sort of had a second rejuvination after the Coma that lasted trough 91 until it was all down hill again. So for me I guess 68-77 and 87-91 would all be great years of inspiration.

Yeah for 68; but, you know HF, you have a point. I think of 68 so often, and got to 70 more than 69, BUT there is something special about 71. It really draws me in...the OOnes sound so different. And I think it is his tone.

That somehow seems to change for me in 72 and 73.

That is the reason I "stop" and it's odd you're the first one to articulate it...unless you repost that it changes and then is the same in 72...

about a year or so ago I thought we determined that the "time" of change was after the August 71 berzerkely greek shows...

if memory serves me correctly phil also made a sound change around this time...

(sorry, no time to forum search for evidence...)

so this week I am living with 71-07-02 and I am feeling a strong pull to return to one of my favorite months and the april 71 college tour...:-)

Oh yeah, that July 71 show is classic...Hitler mighta picked it to commemorate Stalingrad instead of whatever it was he picked to play for three days...hmmm, not sure this fits here...but there you have it.

Don't recall what you speak of...but, you mean that they changed guitars or some such? Interesting...makes sense to me...

Actually, Adolph played three days of solemn music after the destruction of Paulus and the Sixth Army...whatever your view on the Germanic Role in WWII, no one can deny the sacrifice of the boys of the Sixth Army...

Of 300,000 lost, 91,000 were taken prisoner in early February of 1943. Only 5,000 ever saw their homeland again.

Not defending...just saying. Erich von Mainstein said before hand that disobeying Hitler was the only reasonable course of action.

and ole Adolph tried to play that little mental trick with Paulus promoting him to field marshall in order to to give him the "no German Field marshall ever surrendered" speech but Paulus didn't take the bait and became the first German Field Marshall to surrender a day after the promotion...he ended up living until '57...

funny, I gave up my life of soviet studies about the time the wall came down thinking all of the "fun" was over...boy was I wrong...time to do some reading on georgia...

Ha--your name is obviously "why" I must've randomly thrown in the "music post Stalingrad" reference, recalling our prior talks, subconsciously I guess! Funny...
